("Contractors," for purposes of this paragraph, include contractors, grantees, Cooperative Agreement recipients, Space Act Agreement partners, or other agreement parties.)

Specific requirements are flowed down by the program or project to the activities under them to the extent necessary for the program or project to ensure compliance and mission success.
f. This MPR applies to reimbursable space flight program/projects performed for non-NASA sponsors.
g. This MPR applies to research and TD that is not funded by space flight programs and projects, as well as information technology (IT) and institutional infrastructure programs and projects
